On March 3, Project ‘Hands for Tista’ had a super terrific kick off where everyone had a great time. Aimed at giving ten poverty level families the opportunity to create a source of income, each family was given a female piglet. As the piglets reach adulthood, they’ll be introduced to a male pig whose job is to happily impregnate each of them.
Half of this next generation of piglets will then be shared with other poverty level families and, over time, MANY families will benefit from this project. What will make these pigs valuable is what they’ll be fed. These families cannot afford to buy pig feed so they will eat only what can be harvested from the local plant growth. The net result is a leaner and truly delicious pig!
